Size Comparison Speculation about Flash-Based Zune

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Zune Hardware" @ 10:57 AM

This is 100% speculation, but based on the rumoured size of the flash-based Zune, I created a mock-up of how it compares in size to the current Zune using Size Easy.



That comparison is based on the estimated size of the flash-based Zune as being 3 inches tall by 1.25 inch wide and 0.25 inches thick. It looks quite tiny, no? This is the mass-market Zune that, if priced appropriately, many more people will buy than the current hard drive-based Zune.

Flash-Based Zune On the Way?

"It looks like the same discussion with Chris Stephenson that yielded that 2007 European Zune launch figure also gave up a few more details about the Zune line: apparently we can expect a flash-based Zune for the holiday season later this year (damn they're taking their dear sweet time on that) and apparently Stephenson also hinted at "a truly WiFi-enabled device" at some point in the future, according to Digital Music News."

Well, that's good news for fans of flash-based players. The iPod Nano is easily one of the hottest players on the market, and if Microsoft's strategy is to succeed, they really need to target that demographic. As for a 'truly WiFi-enabled device', well, I agree wholeheartedly with Engadget when they said "upgrade the firmware and add the features, don't try to sell us a v2 device that does what the V1 device can and should." The Digital Music News article can be found here.
